KLRU Brings The World To Your Neighborhood!

Happy 50th Anniversary to
Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood on PBS!

It’s a beautiful day in the Central Texas neighborhood… because of YOU!

There’s a lot to celebrate this March at KLRU! We’re six days into our Spring Fund Drive and on March 20th we commemorate Mister Rogers’ birthday and his 50 groundbreaking years on public television.

The man who taught millions of young viewers that they should be loved exactly as they are has nurtured kindness in generations. Mister Rogers’ thoughtful lessons emphasized the great importance of a safe, educational space like PBS—made available for free to every American. KLRU is proud to be a part of this legacy.

If Mister Rogers inspired your love of PBS…if you believe that the quality content on KLRU is worth funding and protecting…consider making a gift during the KLRU Spring Drive!


Make sure to tune-in to KLRU tonight at 7 p.m. for Mister Rogers: Its You I Like
As a tribute on this 50th Anniversary of Fred Rogers on PBS—and after nearly 900 episodes—stars like Whoopi Goldberg, John Lithgow, Yo-Yo Ma, Sarah Silverman and more reveal some of their favorite Mister Rogers’  Neighborhood moments.

Your Investment during our Spring Fundraising Drive

Because of YOU, we were able to surpass our goal and raise over $280,000 from 1700 people in our community during our Spring Fundraising Drive. Not only did we surpass our goal, but you helped make Your Favorites week a success, raising over $55,000 in support of your favorite PBS and KLRU programs. It is your generosity that gives us the ability to continue building a stronger Central Texas through quality public television and vital community services. Thank you!

In fact, your gift will help KLRU convene conversations, bringing people together around issues that matter. Your gift helps KLRU support children, families and teachers, offering trustworthy educational media and face-to-face outreach where it is most needed. Your gift helps KLRU produce original content created for, about, and with the people who live here. Your gift helps KLRU tell local stories, connecting your community around different histories and a shared future.

KLRU is community-supported:  over 85% of our annual funding comes from individual donors, foundations and corporations.  Your donation creates a stronger community, one story at a time.

Thank you for investing in KLRU this Spring!
